About Montreux, Switzerland

Home of the most famous jazz festival in the world, Montreux is a sophisticated Swiss town for the decidedly non-stressed. Bordered by Lake Geneva and the Chillon Castle on one side, and the Alps and vineyards everywhere else, the town is a walker's dream, an ideal setting for people who insist on sipping cappuccino while feasting on the perfect view. It's a destination for lovers of art, music and architecture and an excellent get-away from big city skylines. It's ideal for hiking and bicycling, but you can certainly take a more leisurely approach rent a boat, eat at a Michelin-starred restaurant or take a scenic train journey though the wine growing region.
Montreux, Switzerland Factoid
The famous Montreux Jazz Festival has more to do with popular music in general than it does with jazz. You can still catch greats like Pat Metheny, Brad Mehldau, Cassandra Wilson, Herbie Hancock and Keith Jarrett, but they're joined by artists from a wide spectrum of additional genres.
